not tested new design with scrolling, titles and more - but bugs (automatic daily update one day late and links to wrong page on Nexus 5)

Good, but needs some work The new design looks nice, with some Material Design elements, but navigation sucks now. We can't quickly swipe from image to image anymore. Back arrow navigation is broken. If you click on the notification to view the current APOD, the arrow closes the app instead of backing out to the app's gallery. The notification then gets stuck showing you that previous day's APOD every day after unless you swipe the app from your Recents and reopen it with the app icon to get to the gallery view.

Wallpaper auot-update feature is a winner! I've had this app for some time, but now it can update your wallpaper every morning with the new APOD. Brilliant!
